Next Generation SHEroes:

Elizabeth Rowe – Climate Change 'Whisperer'

Professionally, Elizabeth Rowe is engaged in what might be described as a “hot” - but often divisive - field. While her business is environmental management consulting, perhaps her vision statement best defines her true focus. In her own words, Elizabeth says, “I’m passionate about creating climate change policy solutions that work collaboratively with diverse stakeholders to build resilient solutions.”

Hers is an interesting and inspiring story of how she came to her career path and her specific area of focus – as well as what distinguishes her perspective and consulting work from others in her field. She’s much more a climate change ‘whisperer’ than a die-hard environmentalist.
